We're wrapping up the 2014 season by ranking the top 100 players in college football, just like we did before the season. As the rankings are announced, you can also find them here on the pages of ESPN.com.

How did we rank the players?
We asked 32 of ESPN's college football writers and editors to rate players on a scale of 0-10 based on their performance during the 2014 season.
1. QB Marcus Mariota, Oregon Ducks
Mariota spent the regular season dazzling on the field and then spent most of December on award stages. He won the Heisman Trophy, the Walter Camp Award, the Maxwell Award, the Davey O'Brien Award and the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. Despite a constantly shuffling offensive line, he kept the Ducks rolling, averaging 547 yards of offense per game. Mariota threw just four interceptions to his 42 passing touchdowns. He also accounted for 770 rushing yards and 15 rushing TDs.
2. WR Amari Cooper, Alabama Crimson Tide
It was hard to find a better receiving threat in all of college football. The record-setting wideout led the nation with 124 receptions and was second with 1,727 yards and 16 receiving touchdowns. Cooper caught at least eight passes in 12 games and registered at least 100 yards in seven games, including two 224-yard outputs.
3. RB Melvin Gordon, Wisconsin Badgers
Only Barry Sanders can claim to have had a better season by a running back than Gordon, who rushed for 2,587 yards, scored 32 total touchdowns and averaged 7.5 yards per carry. He gashed Nebraska for a then-record 408 yards in just three quarters Nov. 15, and he had six games of at least 200 yards, including a 251-yard, three-touchdown curtain call in the Outback Bowl win over Auburn.
4. LB Scooby Wright III, Arizona Wildcats
Winner of the Nagurski, Bednarik and Lombardi awards, Wright was the nation's most decorated defensive player. He averaged 11.6 tackles per game and led the nation with 2.1 tackles for a loss per game. He also forced six fumbles and recorded 14 sacks.
5. DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State Buckeyes
He terrorized opposing quarterbacks and ball carriers to the tune of 13.5 sacks, 21 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles while making the Twitter shrug emoticon his signature celebration. The scary part for other teams? Bosa was just a true sophomore in 2014 and will be coming to an offensive backfield near you again this fall.
6. QB Trevone Boykin, TCU Horned Frogs
After he finished last season as a wide receiver, Boykin became a Heisman-contending QB this year. On the way to capturing Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year honors, Boykin threw for more than 3,900 yards and totaled 41 touchdowns while leading TCU to a record of 12-1.
7. DT Leonard Williams, USC Trojans
Williams, an All-American, might be the first defensive lineman taken in this spring's NFL draft. In fact, he could go No. 1 overall. The leader of USC's defense, he piled up 80 tackles, which ranked second on the Trojans, and seven sacks. He also had an interception and three forced fumbles.
8. QB J.T. Barrett, Ohio State Buckeyes
Cardale Jones helped deliver the national title to Ohio State, but the Buckeyes don't get in that position without Barrett. The redshirt freshman became the emergency starter when Braxton Miller went down in fall camp with a shoulder injury, and Barrett exceeded all expectations while breaking most of Miller's school records before breaking his ankle against Michigan on Nov. 29. He accounted for 45 total touchdowns and finished behind only Marcus Mariota in passer efficiency rating.
T-9. S Landon Collins, Alabama Crimson Tide
The ball-hawking safety was Alabama's most consistent defensive player this season. Not afraid to get physical in the box or line up in coverage, Collins projects as the top safety in this year's NFL draft. Collins led Alabama with 102 total tackles, including 60 solo stops. He also notched three interceptions and defended 10 passes.
T-9. DE Shane Ray, Missouri Tigers
There's just something about Missouri defensive ends. A year after losing star Michael Sam, Mizzou more than made up for it with Ray leading the SEC in sacks (14.5) and tackles for loss (22.5). The All-American and SEC Defensive Player of the Year set Mizzou's school record for sacks.
